The Battle of Trafalgar, 21 October 1805; The 'Victory' cutting through the French line
The seventh, but ninth in order of events, in a series of ten drawings (PAF5871- 5874, PAF5876, PAF5880-5881 and PAF5883-5885) of mainly lesser-known incidents in Nelson's career, apparently intended for a set of engravings. This and PAF5883 are exceptions in subject terms. Pocock's own numbered description of it in a letter of 2 June 1810, is:'7. "Victory" Cutting thro: the French Line. (Battle of Trafalgar).' For the rather complex circumstances of the commissioning of these ten drawings, and Pocock's related letters, see PAF5871, ' View of St Eustatius with the "Boreas" '. Signed by the artist and dated, lower right.
